Read Think Act Ep.8: Language, Work and Deep Wheel Orcadia with Harry Josephine Giles


View Linked Books

Our Read Think Act Video series is back for 2022! This is the series where writing and activism go hand in hand (or head to head) and we explore the space where they intersect, taking ideas from he pages and into our communities.

In this in-shop episode we're tremendously excited to speak to poet and novelist Harry Josephine Giles. Jess and Josie talk about the power held by the Orkney language in the novel-in-verse Deep Wheel Orcadia, work conditions of literary production, and humour as resistance.

But first, a gorgeous reading from the book!
